Something we had been looking forward to for a while was our visit to Burjesta Theatre. The Poisoners Progress is a story of   ” A bittersweet romance of all things sugary…” to be played out at the Casa Bar where Burjesta are based. Now the Casa Bar in itself has a history all of its own that makes it well worth a visit in its own right and is adorned with some stunning photography.

Once settled into the cosy theatre the play unfolded into a very informative and funny journey through time showing the conception of our love affair with sugar. Played out as an alternative christmas pantomime and advent calendar, each scene was given a ” discreetly”  hidden number for the audience to try and spot. The  cast opened each window of information and delivered the horror story that is sugar in an accomplished manner, it was a great performance by the cast and full of laughs along the way . The play was written and directed by Mikyla  Durkan who has undertaken the challenge of a sugar free diet and recently completed 120 days . You can read the progress of Mikyla here:  The Poisoners Progress     Burjesta have a nice looking programme of events coming up next year which can be found at their website Burjesta-theatre  : The Poisoners Progress is a J.J.Bond Production.
